Katie Arends

Caring Matters Now Support Group has dedicated support for all our teenagers.  If you are aged between 13 years – 19 years and would like to talk to someone of a similar age, please contact Katie Arends.

Katie, who has CMN, is our teenage support contact and is very happy to talk to any of our teenage members.  Katie (22) knows first-hand the difficulties that are attached to having CMN, especially throughout the teenage years.  Katie has recently graduated from university, after completing a teaching degree in secondary education and is a great example of someone who has successfully reached her personal goals and aspirations.  The CMN trustees are thrilled to have Katie on board in supporting our teenage members.

If you would like to get in touch with Katie, please email teenage@caringmattersnow.co.uk
